PHNOM PENH -- Employees of Cambodia's NagaWorld are protesting after they say the casino, one of the most profitable in the world, stopped paying wages for furloughed staff.

The casino -- which made $521 million in profit last year and recorded gross gaming revenue of $1.7 billion -- has been closed since March amid ongoing measures to curb the spread of COVID-19.
